Manager of the week – Week 26

Goals conceded by the top clubs dented a double bubble points week. Barry Plummer picked up the fiver with a 105. Next up Neil Addington with 104 and then two other managers – Jordan Perry and Alex Byatt – were the only two others who made a century of points.

Ricky Wood 99, Steve Black 99, Ken Cobbett 94 and Matt Pini 90, all scored well.

The week 26 lowest score was still pretty impressive, Omar scoring 37.

Just champion

N&R Premier League – Week 25

A 44 point gap at the top for the 2014/15 N&R Champion Guinness & eggs. 2Infinity & beyond (N&R Champ in 2002/3) is 2nd and Hannoi Utd (N&R Champ in 2001/2, 2003/4, 2009/10 & 2016/17) 3rd.

To be Coutinhoed lead the charge of those desperate to join the N&R Hall of Fame. Woody’s Round Up (N&R Champ 2011/12) is already etched on the list, but Sloan Rangers, Too Bigg to Fail, who were so close last year and Warsaw United make up the prized places.

Warsaw United are back in the top 8 after a 19 week break.Sweats 11 fall to 10th and Sticky Toffees jump to joint 11th with Gooner win League.

At the bottom Loads of Roubles are out of immediate danger. Atletico Hoxton and Permatan all moved up. Biking or Bust are off the bottom and are replaced by Crouch Potato.

Horror story

N&R Championship – Week 25

The No Hopers have been top since week 2, and remain 38 points clear of Pun three, who’ve been 2nd since week 17.

Many of Horror keep up their upward mobility and are now 5th. Kansas City Blues climb to 6th and Nothing up front who looked relegation fodder a month to so back are now 8th.

Keep the faith are going backwards and lower down Watson’s Wonderers are back in the pink in 15th. Cheer up the sun is red and Razorinho continue their own battle and are now level on points in the neutral territory of 16th.

Expected Toulouse, who were as high as 4th are now 20th.

Dirty (bastard) Sanchez remain bottom.
